Password Manager Daemon serves clients data via a Unix domain socket or over a remote TLS connection. The data is stored in an (optionally) encrypted XML file, and the client must provide the key to modify it. It has the option to use gpg-agent for key management (including smartcards). It is multi-threaded, allowing more than one client to be connected at the same time. Key retrieval may be done via a key file or a pinentry program. A key cache is used, so a client won't need to enter a passphrase each time one is required. It is very configurable. Libpwmd is also available as a separate project and is a library making it easy for applications to use Pwmd.
Release Notes: This release lets the CLEARCACHE and CACHETIMEOUT commands make use of the "tls_access" configuration parameter and fixes some bugs and memory leaks.
ttx teletext browser is a little program to read teletext pages on your desktop. Currently, it supports Dutch, Belgian, Finnish, and Italian teletext services. It is the successor to ttb (by the same author).

Other interesting features are simple multi-monitor support and the ability to add special effects to wallpaper.
Release Notes: This release adds a Vietnamese translation and fixes incorrect loading of translation file in some cases.
QPwmc is a full featured Qt4 pwmd client. It can manage remote hosts, generate keys when using gpg-agent, change a data file passphrase via pinentry or keyfile, send a protocol command to pwmd, and more. It is a work in progress but is very functional.
Release Notes: This version adds support for empty passphrases in non-PKI data files and adds commandline usage text. It requires libpwmd 7.1.0 and pwmd 3.0.3.
Libpwmd provides an API for applications needing to communicate with PWMD (Password Manager Daemon). It is thread safe. It can connect to a remote pwmd server over an SSH channel or via TLS using a client certificate as authentication. It can use a pinentry program to prompt for a passphrase when needed. It supports secure memory management. It includes a command line client with a shell-like interface that can also read a Pwmd protocol command from standard input.
Release Notes: This version adds pwmd_passwd() to change the passphrase of a data file and adds pwmd_getopt() to get the value of a pwmd_option_t.
SMCRoute is a daemon and command line tool to manipulate the multicast routes of the Linux kernel. It can be used as an alternative to dynamic multicast routers like 'mrouted' in situations where (only) static multicast routes should be maintained and/or no proper IGMP signaling exists.
Release Notes: This release fixes a possible memory leak on Linux, missing #ifdefs when building without IPv6, and (massive) parallel build problems. It supports RedHat EL5/CentOS5 (i.e., Linux <= 2.6.25).

rawdog is a feed aggregator capable of producing a personal "river of news" or a public "planet" page. It supports all common feed formats, including all versions of RSS and Atom. By default, it is run from cron, collects articles from a number of feeds, and generates a static HTML page listing the newest articles in date order. It supports per-feed customizable update times, and uses ETags, Last-Modified, gzip compression, and RFC3229+feed to minimize network bandwidth usage. Its behavior is highly customizable using plugins written in Python.
Release Notes: rawdog now works with the upstream version of feedparser, and feedfinder was replaced with a new module. Templates can now be used when generating the feed list. Error reporting was significantly improved. A test suite was added, and several minor bugs were fixed.
Mail Avenger is a highly-configurable, MTA-independent SMTP server. It lets users run messages through filters like ClamAV and SpamAssassin during SMTP transactions, so the server can reject unwanted email before assuming responsibility for its delivery. Other unique features include TCP SYN fingerprint and network route recording, SPF (sender policy framework) as a general policy language, qmail-style delivery of extension addresses, validation of sender addresses through SMTP callbacks, mail-bomb protection, integration with kernel firewalls, and more.

XMLStarlet is a set of command line XML utilities which can be used to transform, query, validate, and edit XML documents and files using a simple set of shell commands, similar to the way it is done for plain text files using grep/sed/awk/tr/diff/patch.
Release Notes: This release fixes a crash when trying to run pyx on nonexistent files and a boundary condition in the unescape command. The ed and sel commands can now refer to a document's top level default namespace with "_" or "DEFAULT" and give a friendly message if the user doesn't realize they need to specify namespaces.
S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online. It supports Amazon S3, Google Storage, and OpenStack and effectively provides you with a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. S3QL provides a standard, full featured Unix file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Additional features include compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees, and snapshotting, which make it especially suitable for online backup and archiving. The design favors simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection, error handling, and extensive automated test cases are provided.
Release Notes: S3QL now uses SSL connections by default and verifies server certificates. A race condition that resulted in an apparent loss of remote metadata was fixed. The S3 backend now deletes multiple storage objects using one request if possible, reducing latency, traffic, and number of requests to S3. S3QL is now able to detect server errors and redirections before all data has been sent to the server. A new 'rackspace' backend that allows specification of the object storage region in the storage URL was added. The mount.s3ql --compress option now allows specification of the compression level.
HGL is a compiler/interpreter suite for developing images. It features its own simple but powerful language, an output format configurable by plugins, runtime input handled by plugins, and easy integration into various environments like Web servers or graphical applications. The input is taken from a source file, which has to be compiled for quick and frequent access by the interpreter. An interpreter then runs the compiled files, takes input from custom plugins (if neccessary), and outputs its result via custom plugins.
Release Notes: Cubic bezier curves are now supported, as are paths with -I. The compiler now offers suggestions for unresolvable references. Svg2hgl received matrix, skewX, and skewY transformations, fill and stroke of group (g) inherited to children, and rgb(r,g,b) supported for colors. There were some bugfixes and general improvements.
cdist is a usable configuration management system. It adheres to the KISS principle and is being used in both small and enterprise-grade environments. It is an alternative to other configuration management systems like cfengine, bcfg2, chef, and puppet.
Release Notes: The internal object ID 'singleton' was dropped, the build system was cleaned up, and __package_opkg was improved.

Minerva is a complete, easy to use home automation suite. It allows you to switch your on lights from anywhere using a mobile phone or PC, email your video, check CCTV footage, control your central heating, and much more. It relies on command line and can therefore be run from virtually any platform (smart phone, PDA, laptop, or remote PC) with identical functionality. The architecture consists of three parts: input, output, and process. Each is completely distinct, meaning you can control any of the house processes from any supported input conduit such as a Web browser, remote control, or SMS. Reports or notifications can be sent to any of the available output conduits.
Release Notes: This release adds route configuration to Live Departure Boards. It adds an applet for 'routines' to trigger sequences. It adds an applet for 'mashmode' to change the house state. It adds an applet for 'musk' (user scripts). It adds a draft of the 'infrastructure' applet. It adds a 'house' example, handling all standard house control tasks. It adds a back button on the web interface. It uses AJAX to improve the loading speed of several applets. It fixes the weather report applet. A full audit of the RSS applet and feeds has been done. There is a new set of routines as examples, including one to try and prevent falling asleep on the train. A 'within' script has been added.
SymmetricDS provides file and database synchronization with support for multi-master replication, filtered synchronization, and transformation across the network in a heterogeneous environment. It supports multiple subscribers with one-direction or bi-directional, asynchronous data replication. It uses Web and database technologies to replicate data as a scheduled or near-realtime operation. The software has been designed to scale for a large number of nodes, work across low-bandwidth connections, and withstand periods of network outage. It works with most operating systems, file systems, and databases, including Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MS SQL Server (including Azure), IBM DB2, H2, HSQLDB, Derby, Firebird, Interbase, Informix, Greenplum, SQLite (including Android), Sybase ASE, and Sybase ASA (SQL Anywhere) databases.
Release Notes: This release includes bugfixes for transforms and extraction and an improvement for deploying with Web applications.
Asymptote is a powerful descriptive 2D and 3D vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. It provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. Asymptote is a programming language as opposed to just a graphics program. It can exploit the best features of script (command-driven) and graphical user interface (GUI) methods. High-level graphics commands are implemented in the language itself, allowing them to be easily tailored to specific applications.
Release Notes: A segmentation fault in drawSphere was fixed. Recursive calls to simpson are now supported. The explicit libglapi dependency was removed. A latexmkrc example file that shows how to store figures in a subdirectory is now included.
MediaFire Shell is a console tool which provides FTP-like access to your MediaFire account. It supports SSL login and switching users, folder navigation (changing directory), folder/file listing, terminal scale detection (variable width), generation of file download links, and a help system.
Release Notes: This release adds a 'mkdir' command to create a cloud folder. It adds a 'get' command for single file downloading.
